Sun July 28: Alice n' WonderBand Alice Bell (vocals)
Luca Boscagin (guitar)
Davide Mantovani (bass)
Davide Giovannini (drums)
Yalm Food Court
Entry £15.50
Alice and the trio take you on a colourful journey into the Brazilian Songbook, performing popular hits such as ‘Agua de beber’, ‘Insensatez’ and ‘Triste’ alongside hidden gems such as ‘Olha pro Ceu’ and ‘Vida bela’ (written by a young Tom Jobim before going on to be regarded as the father of Bossanova).

Delving into Musica Populàr Brasilera (MPB) they’ll perform stylish and unexplored songs from national icon Fatima Guedes (‘Flor de Ir embora’, 'Meninas da cidade') as well as from global stars Gilberto Gil and Elis Regina ('Madalena’, ‘Ladera da Preguiça’, ‘Marambaia').

A versatile, multi-lingual singer and trained classical pianist, Alice spent time in Floranopolis and Rio immersed in Bossanova and Musica Populàr Brasilera - cementing a life-long love of Brazilian music - before moving to settle in the UK, where since 2005 she’s worked as a recording artist and performer, appearing at top music venues such as Ronnie Scotts, Café Zedel and Guanabara.

Tue August 13: 'Tis Autumn Alan Barnes (saxes)
David Newton (piano)

Maddermarket Theatre Bar
Entry £16 / £8 (under 25s)
Having recently announced the release of their latest duet album “Tis Autumn”, saxophonist Alan Barnes and pianist David Newton will be performing tracks from the album in a very special intimate gig in the theatre’s bar on Tues 13th August.

The two veterans of the UK and European jazz scenes have enjoyed a close working relationship going right back to their early careers, so this gig will be a great opportunity to observe that special synergy close at hand, and punctuated no doubt by Alan's humorous anecdotes.

“..perilously close to becoming national treasures.”
